Encounter: to meet someone unexpectedly. I met God unexpectedly, at a time when I thought that if He did exist, we had absolutely nothing to offer each other. As I met others who had also encountered God, I became fascinated by the ways in which He had shown up in their lives and had caught their attention. Not one of the stories I heard was the same as another; each story unfurling in unique and personal ways that had me on the edge of my seat. As I listened to these stories, I learnt more about God; His character, His personality, His heart. As I heard what He had done for others, answering prayer, changing circumstances and providing in miraculous ways, it raised my own expectation of what He could do in my life. That right there, is the power of a testimony. The Bible is full of encounters; stories of both the great and small things that God did, in the lives of those that called upon His name. It became obvious to me that God didn't stop creating testimonies with the completion of the Bible; we just stopped keeping a detailed record. There are modern day David and Goliath stories all around us; Joseph's, Esther's and Daniel's impacting history all over the world at this very moment. I truly believe, that we all have that potential with God's help; if once having met Him unexpectedly, we seek His best for our lives. That is what I decided to do. After having tried everything else in the world, I met this amazing God who wanted good things for me; the best good things. I decided to accept this generous offer of guidance, protection and blessing, and waited to see what would happen. What happened you ask? This book happened.
